Justin Tuck: I don’t want to be embarrassed this weekend

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said that he’s happy that the schedule is sending the Seahawks to MetLife Stadium this week because he’s never played there before and he thinks it will be good to get the lay of the land in the event the Seahawks are playing there again in early February.

As the quarterback of the team with the best record in the NFC, Wilson’s got every reason to think that a Super Bowl trip could be in his future. Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said that he couldn’t blame Wilson for feeling that way, although he doesn’t plan to be a welcoming host just because the Giants will have been on vacation for a month by the time the Super Bowl rolls around.

Tuck wants to put up a good fight against the Seahawks so that the Giants can avoid being the sixth team to lose to the Seahawks by at least 20 points this season.

“The last thing you want to be is embarrassed,” Tuck said, via the New York Daily News. “This is a team if you’re not ready to play, they will embarrass you — and laugh about it. That’s point blank. I ain’t in the business of being embarrassed. I’m in the business of going out there and putting on a great show for our fans and helping us win football games.”

The Giants are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Chargers last week in a game that saw them show very little spark while getting run off the field. Tuck will need to hope that protecting their home field sparks a bit more pride from his mates because a repeat of the same effort this time around would leave the Seahawks in stitches as they make their way back across the country.

    While I’m expecting the Seahawks to win this, Wilson’s attitude may be a sign of over-confidence. The Giants, on their home field, are a team capable to putting a good enough game together to beat Seattle, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do.

    Seahawks can lose to the Giants and as long as they don’t lose at home, their next road game would indeed be right back at MetLife.

    Notice quotes on tucks comments and no quotes on Wilson’s?

    I bought a ticket to this game before the season. I’m just looking forward to a good tailgate. I’m going into the stadium with very low expectations and will be very drunk.

    Well Justin, if ya really don’t wanna be embarrassed, just don’t show up, cuz its gonna be embarrassing.

    No tailgating allowed at the Super Bowl, 1337ryan.

    I bought a ticket to this Sunday’s game, not the SB.

    I think the Giants will play Seattle hard but the turnovers may let this game get away.

    Hawks strength on defense is passing game, a little venerable at times against the run. Giants struggle at running the ball but have playmakers for pass.

    I read the Wilson interview and he says is excited about the “potential” to play in a Super Bowl at Met Life. From pre-season he calls every week a “championship week”. The only game where they came out flat was Tampa Bay. Seattle knows they need at least 2 or their last 3 games to lock up homefield for playoffs. NY is playing for pride.

    @fwippel

    Wilson’s attitude a sign of over-confidence? How do you get that from him saying it’d be good to get the lay-of-the land in the event the team returns in
    February? It’s not like he was saying “oh yeah, we’re definitely going to the SB and will be back here for sure in February”. Clearly you know nothing about RW3 or have ever heard him speak to the media. He’s the most humble QB ever. He never takes credit for anything he does and is constantly praising the team’s effort. While I don’t expect the Giants to just roll over without putting up a fight, I don’t see them pulling out the win. Regardless if it’s on their home field or not.

    The Giants will run the ball well, they are too inconsistent in the passing game, regardless of facing the best secondary in football. Trust me as a Giants fan, the Giants will find a way to turn it over and go away from the run, when it will work.

    Long-time Giants fan here. What will happen Sunday will be typical Giants. They will crush the Seahawks, a game they should not win, especially now that they have nothing more to play for. Why didn’t you play like that when it mattered? And they will lose by double digits the pathetic Redskins in the last week.

    Put your whole heart in it and never give up…. Just think how sweet it is to embarrass Sherman yet again… The niners had the last laugh…

    The Seahawks are going to Struggle in this game. It’s on the road and a 10am game they are well know for Slow Starts.

    When was Sherman embarrassed? What did we miss? What last laugh? If SF even makes the playoffs, they aren’t going to win in Seattle to make it to the Super Bowl.

    1 pm eastern slow start + Giants always starting slowly offensively = low scoring game with some foolish Giants turnover to seal it late. Hence the line being 7.

    Yea…Wilson did not say that. I would like to see a quote from him please.
